First of all, you need to know that peacocks are excitable birds. Care should be taken to keep the house in a quiet place. Peacocks do not like harsh sounds, noise and rumblings. Otherwise, they become nervous, may injure themselves or attack neighbors. In order for the birds to remain healthy, their aviary must be kept clean. Change sawdust bedding, ventilate the house, disinfect feeders and add clean water. If in the summer poultry farmers can limit themselves to daylight, then in the winter you need to turn on artificial lighting. This is necessary in order to extend the usual daylight hours for peacocks, since in Moscow it is much shorter. It is recommended to use fluorescent lamps for illumination.

BREED DETAILS- Purple peafowl 
The Purple is a color mutation, and can be combined with pattern mutations to form Purple Pieds, and Purple Blackshoulders, as well as Purple Spaldings. Purple peacocks have typical India Blue coloration, but in shades of purple and bluish purple instead of blue and blue-green. The neck and breast feathers have a purplish sheen instead of bluish green. The train is darker than a typical Blue's and there are dark green and purple highlights in the ocelli. There is little of the yellow or red iradescence that is prevelant in Blue or Blackshoulder feathers. As the feathers age they begin to fade, to a much greater degree than can be found in the Cameo, and much of the iradescence is lost. Prior to molting the feathers are so faded they look brown or off white, almost like those of the Cameo, which makes the faded green and purple eyespots stand out even more. This feather fading phenomenon make Purple peafowl look like two different mutations in winter and in summer. Peachick Coloration: Purple peachicks are nearly identical to Cameo chicks at hatching and are a creamy brown color. Hens are brown in color, slightly darker than Cameo hens, with purple coloration on their necks in place of the green coloration on India Blue hens. Their coloration fades during the spring and summer as well, but it is not as drastic a change as with the males
